Reversible Sewing Hack To Take In Clothes At The Waist
choose an item in your closet with a waist that you would like to take in
Pinch the waist in the back to your desired size. Measure the length of the fabric you pinched.(~1.5 inches here)
Measure the length from the back belt loop. Mark that spot on each side with a safety pin.
I highly suggest using extra strong thread if you do this with denim!
Sew a ladder stitch in a V shape in line with the center belt loop and out toward the safety pin.
Pull thread taut to cinch in the waist.
Repeat on the other side of the belt loop.
